Can it work? Any good examples? I'm thinking about a navy suit with stripes...two different alternating colors on the stripes.
Which colors would look best in your opinion?

edit: Not for business wear, that is. (at least for my part)

If one stripe is a low-contrast neutral (such as medium gray on navy), it might work. Off-the-rack would be very hard to find, and even for custom-made, the right fabric probably would be hard to source.

I do find multi pinstripe patterns are a good alternative if you have a good collection of single chalkstripe and pinstripes.

If the base colour is something unusual, such as dark burgundy or chocolate brown, it can work as a business and dress suiting. e.g. nice restaurants, hotel drinks and clubhouses.
